Before you jump into a new street food business, consider the pros AND cons. Here are nine reasons you should not start a hot dog cart.
Why you should NOT start a cart
Obviously, I spend a lot of time helping people build successful hot dog businesses. But nobody who starts a business should ignore the possible obstacles and realistic downside of a business. Plus, there may be people who try to discourage you and tell you that you should not start your business.
Here are those nine top reasons you should not start a cart. But if you're determined to be successful, they are all possible to overcome!
- Opening a food business requires permits (You can get licensing mostly done in a day.)
- City might say NO
- Competition says NO
- Naysayers discourage you (Don't let them stop you)
- No time
- No money (you should see what Jose did to overcome this one)
- Fear of failure (first day jitters? It happens to everybody!)
- Short hours and big pay
Not deterred and still curious about why you might want to start a mobile food business? Get it!
